Authentic Movement: Dance Therapy and the Moving Imagination
August 22, 2015 - August 23, 2015
Berkeley, CA, United States
This course in Dance/Movement Therapy explores movement as active imagination in healing and transformation. Beginning with the contributions of early pioneers, we will engage Jungian concepts and their evolution into Authentic Movement, and explore more recent developments in the practice related to group and individual therapy.
Authentic Movement is a depth-oriented therapeutic approach, bridging body and psyche through natural movement, augmented by drawing and writing.
This course will reflect on the history of Authentic Movement, including Jungian theory, elements from BodySoul Rhythms®, neuroscience, discussion of the readings, and clinical applications of inner-sourced movement in therapy.
This workshop will deepen your understanding of moving and witnessing practice. In the process participants can continue to develop their ability to be present, with oneself and with another, in a more vital, increasingly conscious relationship, inviting a level of perception of self and other that can evoke deep respect and empathy.
Dates: August 22, 2015 @ 9:30 am - August 23, 2015 @ 6:00 pm
